I was a teenager during the turbulent 1960’s. I liked rock and roll music, sports cars, keeping up with current events and other normal things. But underneath, I was seriously and desperately looking for the truth. During my years at the University of Texas at Austin, I became less and less happy, more and more angry and increasingly hopeless. At the last my lifestyle brought me to a near death experience which jolted me out of my entrenched atheism. I experienced the biggest shock of my life: there is a spiritual world. There is a God. There is also a Devil. I had been utterly on the wrong side. But when I found that to be the deepest truth that I had been searching for, the answer was clear. I wanted no part with the Darkness. I wanted to throw in my lot with the good God, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham.
Months later I finally found some young radical Christians who could answer the question I now had. Who was Jesus? They answered me from the Bible, as well as the dedication and consecration that showed in their lives. From then on I not only believed in God. I believed also in the Messiah who’d been promised for thousands of years, Jesus of Nazareth.
I dedicated my life to full time Christian service and soon moved to Europe in the early 1970’s to reach my own generation with the message of the New Testament. I ended up spending 35 years abroad, living in around 25 countries and just having a wonderful life, lived for God and for others.
There’s so much more to tell and I’ll try to do that in some of the articles that will be posted on this blog. A special interest for me became the subject of Bible prophecy and in recent years I’ve been working on a series of videos on that subject. But at least this is a start towards explaining what God has done in my life and the path He has led me in.
